OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — Hopeful Growth took the lead in the stretch and drew off to a four-length victory in the $200,000 Monmouth Oaks at Monmouth Park on Saturday.
Ridden by Antonio Gallardo and trained by Anthony Margotta, Jr., Hopeful Growth covered the mile and a sixteenth in 1:45.63 for her first stakes victory.
Owned by St. Elias Stable, Hopeful Growth paid $25.60, $12 and $7. The filly has won three times win five career starts.
Delaware Oaks winner Project Whiskey held for second, 2¼ lengths ahead of Eve of War.
Project Whiskey returned $7.60 and $4.20, while Eve of War was $7 to show.
“Her last race was the first time she ran around two turns,” Margotta said. “We were hoping to hit the board there, but typically a horse going two turns for the first time in our program may need a race around two turns the first time. This was our bull’s eye target.”
Gallardo kept Hopeful Growth along the rail as favored Lucrezia and Project Whiskey battled for the lead. She found clearance in mid-stretch and proved to be much the best in the field of nine 3-year-old fillies.

Man suspected of vandalizing 63 subway cars, breaking 200 windows in NYC
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police are looking for a man wanted in connection to a three-month subway vandalism spree that has resulted dozens of damaged cars.
On Wednesday, Eyewitness News got a look at some of the cars that have been pulled from service that now sit at a rail yard in Queens.
Since early May, 63 MTA subway cars have been vandalized across the city.
More than 200 glass windows on the trains have been damaged.
Police believe one man is involved in the dozens of incidents that occurred on the 2, 3 and 7 lines in the Bronx and Queens.
He has been seen carrying a hammer.
"Window glass, side-door glass, half-picture windows, full-picture windows and it's been all over the cars," an official said. "This is really a waste of New York City Transit resources, pulling these trains out of service, there's a tremendous cost in material and labor to get these trains repaired and back out for customers."
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
